Standing by

Well we didn’t end up heading offshore, and now its blowing pretty good even in fourchon. I’ve talked to a few friends offshore and the consensus is the same; stay at the dock. Could we have squeezed a run in? Looking back now we could have made a quick run, however the dispatcher decided to utilize us differently and that is just fine by me.
Snapped a couple shots of a ship getting moved into Halliburton slip the other day. We were at Baroid loading mud on the bayou side. Definitely cool close quarters work that reminds me of taking tankers in and out of Chelsea Creek in Boston while I was with Foss.

Can you guess what dock they were headed to?
